Parent Council Information 

The Parent Council meets about  every 4-6 weeks, usually in the staffroom at the Academy. Please come along if you are interested  - everyone is very welcome to attend.    

The Parent Council exists to help parents get involved with the school and with their children's education. We discuss amongst other matters, what parents can do to help the school - which might involve fundraising or helping with specific projects.

In February, we will be discussing matters of fundraising and spending existing funds with the Rector, with the aim of contributing to the repair of the school building as well as extra equipment and resources not provided within the Highland Council education budget.

The recent Inspection report will also have been released that day and the Rector will be happy to discuss.

Please come along and contribute your ideas, just for an hour or so.


Co-Chairs  - Joe Hallwood & Steven McLennan

Treasurer - Jillian Mackenzie

Secretary - Shona Bowman
